Lawrence group begins effort to raise tobacco-purchasing age to 21

Seems like it is legal to discriminate against people, but only if they are 18, 19 or 20 years old.

Kansas Water Authority accepts report on proposed aqueduct

About time the state is looking at excess water to western Kansas. Not sure if an aqueduct is the answer though, maybe a large concrete pipeline. Eastern Kansans complain about anything that cost them money when they can't see a benefit for themselves. Well, they'll all be saying, "Why didn't we do this years ago" when the water runs out and the price of beef goes to $10 a pound and we have $6 loaves of bread.

Protesters demonstrate in front of Lawrence Hobby Lobby over company's stance on birth control

I don't see what the big deal is all about. It is still a free country, though not as free as it use to be. Nobody is making people work at Hobby Lobby. Nobody is making people buy stuff at Hobby Lobby. Go to Michael's instead. Work at Michael instead. Or someplace else.

City plans to begin offering classes at Rock Chalk Park recreation center in early September

With all this is costing... is it being built to Olympic standards? If Sochi, why not Lawrence? More would have to be built, but the city & KU would have 12 yrs to do it. Holding some of the events in KC would lessen/share the burden.

Tire tracks, ditched cars point to danger on K-10, Eudora business owner says

I think a more important problem with K-10 is the line paint. When it is dark and there is any amount of rain, the lines just disappear. When it is like that, you just have to feel your way down the road by staying between the rumble strips on the side. I'm sure some people hit the rumble strips and then over correct.

Location of Superman's hometown sparks geographic divide

I always thought Clark was from somewhere in NE Kansas and Dorothy was from the SW corner. At least we know Mary Ann lived on a farm between Winfield and Oxford.

Lawrence gas station owner gets caught up in national battle with Big Oil over future of ethanol

From what I've seen, most stations are using pumps with a single hose to dispence the different octanes and don't have the capability to add a second hose. Therefore new pumps most also be purchased.
